Mechanical Tubing for OEMs

Our customers sometimes assume that the ASTM A513 specification is basically the same as ASTM A500, but they are really quite different. ASTM A513 is not used as for building structures, but for ensuring the strength of conveyor systems and consumer items such as lawnmower handles, recreational vehicle parts and more.
